Thomas wants to touch the wounds of Christ

MY LORD AND MY GOD

by Rod Minns    May 8, 2019

 

Thomas, you with longing heart

Did want to see and touch your risen Lord.

Your craving love for broken side and wounded hand

Did not doubt as many say

Only wanted all, to touch and hold your risen Lord

with probing finger in His hands and side.

For you believed He was the Christ and King of all

But longing for the eyes to see, and only then

to fall on bended knee, “My Lord and my God,”

This held you back from greatest trust,

to love and hold the unseen risen One

as many, many have through ages done.
